FOR SALE: 1984 BMW R100RT ‘FINAL EDITION’ Asking $5000.00 – MUST SELL – EMAIL TO or call 651.592.1521 for more information or schedule a viewing.

A great ride for the serious “AIRHEAD” aficionado. Purchased with 30,000 miles on the odometer. Ridden a bit more than 1000 miles since restoration.

The bike did not show any signs of abuse at purchase, only neglect.

Purchased June 2007 for $3000.00. More than $2000.00 invested in parts and subcontracted services. Approximately 600 hours of research/study and wrench twisting to restore the bike to its current condition.

Most of the paint is original.

A retired toolmaker/machine builder did the restoration process.
